how long after ?

How long after losing your mucous plug did you go into labor?

I think I've been losing mine slowly over the course of about a week and half to two weeks.

It's clear, with a slight yellow tint, it's snotty looking but more stretchy than snot lol is that my plug? I'm almost 35 weeks btw.

  • i lost mine friday night and had my son wed morning.
    you're mucous plug rebuilds itself. so, as more and more comes out, more and more is being rebuilt. won't stop until baby is out.

  • With my first, I lost mine at 36 or 37 weeks and no labor by my scheduled C-section at 39 weeks. With my second, I lost it at 39 weeks 5 days and went into labor the next night.
